Paris-based extreme trio KARRAS release their anticipated second album, ‘We Poison Their Young,’ today on CD, Digital and limited-edition colored vinyl editions. The new album is already receiving great critical attention including Angry Metal Guy who cites “this strikes the face and/or buttocks region with an open-palm swipe…these songs either groove, punish, bulldoze, or all of the above in the scant timeframes they’re allotted” or “Good Lord!! From ‘Prelude to the Depths’ to ‘Negative Life,’ this is the aural equivalent of a brick to the face” claims Metal Epidemic.

To further celebrate the French-based grind/old-school death metal trio’s new offering, the guys issue a music video for the track “Negative Life,” which takes a unique spin to a standard formula.

“The idea of the clip was to bring the lyrics of the song to the center of attention by having them transcribed throughout the clip by Romain Pareja, JD Mendoza, and Angéline, three tattoo artists from Hand In Glove Tattoo shop in Paris, as well as a calligrapher, Leeloo, and a writer of out of service Parisian metro stations, renamed Father Karras to preserve his anonymity,” explains singer/bassist Diego Janson regarding the concept. “The scenes all take place in a closed space, parallel to the claustrophobic exorcism sessions that young Roland Doe undergoes throughout the album. They show through images and text all the suffering and the despair of a teenager imbued with a black and negative life. This is the last song of the album, hope and light will not close it.”
